Pegasus Therapeutic Riding


Mission/ Purpose: Provide therapy at no cost for those with disabilities using donated and adopted equines re-trained as therapy animals. Require each new client to complete a “Client Package” signed by a Physician so our equine therapists know that child’s, malady and the exercise needed. For the physically disabled, endeavor to strengthen muscles, loosen joint, promote circulation to infirmed body parts, improve balance, posture and digestion. For mentally special needs clients work to promote a sense of accomplishment and empowerment by being able to steer a large animal, immerse them in a pattern of following directions, learning patience and courtesy. For the autistic population give them an opportunity to be comfortable with new environments, reduce fear of tactile encounters as they must accept wearing a safety helmet to stay in the therapy riding area, achieve less stress due to loud noises, new colors, smells and textures, and be able to follow directions. To serve children and adults of all ages, all disabilities to look at the ability of a person rather than the disability. To believe that everyone is worthy. To know that MIRACLES DO HAPPEN! Pegasus Therapeutic Riding — All Special Needs, All Ages — is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) We believe the work of Pegasus must continue to focus on reaching out to the working poor and indigent families where health care for special needs is non-existent. Inclusiveness must be embedded within all of our philosophies, strategies, activities and we must focus our 37 +years of expertise gained via our program in achieving community impact for the disabled and identify community issues for those with disabilities and address those issues Your tax deductible contribution can help!
